I specialize in photographing intimate weddings and elopements. Intimate doesn’t have to mean a limited amount of guests though. I define an intimate wedding as a day that is a true reflection of your relationship, that emphasizes what is most important to you, surrounded by the people that matter most. An experience, rather than a big production filled with stressful checklists and traditions.
You’ll get the detail shots and family photos, because those are important too, but I want to give you more than that. I want to capture the unscripted moments; the nervous excitement on your groom’s face, The belly laughs at inappropriate jokes, and the tears in your father’s eyes. These moments are so much better than any pose a photographer could tell you to do.
I don’t stick to one strict style of doing things, or copy and paste my approach from one shoot to the next. You are different than anyone else I will ever work with, and I want to make sure the things that make your love unique are reflected in your photos.
For couples sessions I always find locations that will be a meaningful experience for you; whether it’s a place you have always wanted to explore together, a place you already love or even just your own home. I want to work with you to bring your vision to life. Do you guys have a favorite sunset spot? Sweet, let’s shoot there. Do you two love weekend hikes with your pups? Awesome, let’s hike around and explore together! Does the desert have special place in your hearts? Great, let’s road trip together and camp under the stars, and document it all along the way. I am down for anything, and I’ll never say no to your adventure.
I want to create a comfortable environment where you have the freedom to be yourselves, because that’s when the real magic happens. I do this by building a relationship with the couples I work with and creating an experience that’s actually really freaking fun. The more comfortable you feel, the more you will be yourselves, and that’s how I create my best work. Most couples tell me that they are “super awkward” and “nervous” for the photos, but they always come away from our adventure saying that it was actually really fun.
When it’s all said and done photos are the one tangible thing you will have left from your wedding day. These photos will only become more valuable to you over time. Throughout your lifetime there are very few days as important as your wedding day. You will never regret investing in your memories.
That’s why this is important.
If you value photography as more than just something to check off your list of things to do then I’m your girl. Reach out to me, and lets plan an adventure together.
